Market – Tuesday, July 11

Welcome to the first email for our Fort Pierre Bicentennial Farmers’ Market! Every week I will include a list of the Capital City Farmers’ Market vendors and what they will bring. Then, at the bottom of the list, will be a section called “Other Activities & Food…” This will be where I’ll include things like the bouncy houses, cruise on The Sunset, fundraiser meals, and other activities for you and your family. Location and time of market are at the bottom of this information.

We would like to welcome Nancy’s Nest, BLC Ranch, and Boom Shack Studio to market! Nancy of Nancy’s Nest will have organic baked goods and farm fresh eggs. Ben and Linda of BLC Ranch have Icelandic wool and knit items. Jill Kokesh of Boom Shack Studio has flowers and craft items. Please stop by and welcome them to market!

Then, make a beeline for Sunshine Coffee and pick up an iced coffee for your stroll downtown. Don’t want the caffeine? No problem. They offer decaffeinated coffee!

B&G Produce is bringing their first leeks of the season! It’s too hot for potato leek soup, but grilled leeks with a bit of butter and Parmesan is something to savor.

Love choke cherry syrup? Pick up some choke cherries from Venner Farm and cook up a batch this week for delicious pancakes this weekend!

As a market, we accept credit cards and EBT. Shop all the vendors and pay once before you leave! Stop at the Market Manager booth to start the process and have fun shopping.
